Many Southampton fans are eager to sign Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on loan from Liverpool after the Saints were linked with a move for the England international.
Southampton kick off their Premier League campaign on Saturday as they host Everton at St. Mary’s. So far in this transfer window, Ralph Hasenhuttl has added three new players to his squad in Romain Perraud (southamptonfc.com), Danyl Simeu (chelseafc.com) and Tino Livramento, and he will probably be looking to bring in some more fresh faces before the deadline.
According to talkSPORT, one of those could be £16.2m-valued Oxlade-Chamberlain (Transfermarkt), who the Saints are keen on bringing back to the club. The 27-year-old started his career with Southampton, of course, scoring 10 goals and providing nine assists in 43 games before signing for Arsenal back in 2011 (Transfermarkt).
Having gone on to clock up 44 goals and 52 assists in his club career – a tally which would have surely been much higher had it not been for some cruel injuries – along with winning 35 England caps, the midfielder has proven his worth as a top-level operator.
